welcome to Whore-vember Favorites, its where I recommend my faves of the month; one whore to another.
shall we begin?!
Let me first start off by saying, I have an obese child living within my soul and when she comes out (which is more often than I’d like to admit) she likes to eat like shit and then does a two hour workout sesh at yoga and somehow thinks its a wash…it isn’t. Anyway, when she comes out (let’s just call her Rosie), Rosie likes to eat Jolly Rancher Bites, like a whole bag in one sitting..no joke! It’s gotten so bad, that on Rosie’s birthday she received bags and bags of JR Bites. Diabetes Rosie, diabetes.
Jolly Rancher Bites (Target, $2.99)
Next, die hard Sephora favorites..
Blender Cleanser Solid by beauty blender, this brush cleanser is AHHMAZING! There is literally no other cleanser you’ll want or need if you are a makeup lover that uses makeup brushes or sponges. Which leads me to the next fave..
Blender Cleanser Solid (Sephora, $16)
Beauty Blender Pro & Beauty Blender micro mini, it just gives you the most flawless makeup application and is perfect for beginners. I use the Pro for foundation and liquid bronzer and the micro mini for concealer. Just buy it!

Too Faced “Born This Way” foundation. wow. It’s literally a dream. It leaves your skin completely flawless, like a perfect newborn baby’s skin (hence the name), it’s medium to full coverage but your skin doesn’t get cake-y and gross, capiche?? You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
Too Faced “Born This Way” (Sephora, $39)
Living Proof. prime style extender, where do I even begin with this product without doing a whole blog post alone on this?! Question: Do you want your glossy locks to look like Rachel from Friends? BUY IT! (fyi, Jennifer Aniston is actually the co-owner of Living Proof.) It not only extends the style of your hair, it smells amazing and was actually founded in Boston. Ding!

Oh, Boscia! Where have you been all my life??? Rosie was watching a YouTube guru’s October favorites, which she tends to do while stuffing her face with Jolly Ranchers and Magnum ice cream pops, and the guru was raving about Boscia’s Exfoliating Peel Gel and how it was perfect at not only gently exfoliating the skin but also brightening the skin. I was sold. I decided to purchase it during the Sephora VIB sale. While there, the sassy salesman tried it on my hand and let me just say it is absolutely life changing! You can literally see your skin peel off, which is not only gross but mind boggling. I decided to buy the Boscia Japanese Favorites Kit, it includes the peel, the detoxifying cleanser, luminizing black mask and Tsubaki beauty oil.

now we’ve only just begun (sigh)…
Last couple of favorites from Sephora (no, this isn’t sponsored) one of which would be the NARS x Steven Klein Collaboration “One Shocking Moment” cheek palette. Let me add that I am completely obsessed with anything NARS, let alone all of the great collaborations that they launch (hey NARS?! call me..) If you know anything about NARS, you know that they are not only expensive but have the most pigmented, long lasting products and it’s truly worth every penny. This palette has an all-in-one combo that is perfect for travel or a makeup starter kit. It has a hefty price tag, BUT, you receive a bronzer, a contour shade, a highlight & four blushes. Considering each of these items would normally retail between $30-$39, its a steal! Get it before its gone for good..

Ain’t nobody got time for bad brows! Nobody. Want a perfect brow? Anastasia Brow Wiz. Enough said.

My last Sephora favorite for this month would be my Elizabeth & James (aka Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) Nirvana roller ball perfume. There is Nirvana White and Nirvana Black, and although I love both, I’ve been wearing Nirvana White everyday. It’s described as a delicate blend of peony, chic muguet (huh?!), and tender musk. It smells dark (like my soul), sexy and sophisticated. They can also be mixed and used together for a completely different scent. Take a whiff.
Elizabeth & James Nirvana White (Sephora, $25-$100)
I promise there’s only a few more. Chill out Rosie, grab a snack.
Confession time: Nothing grosses me out more than talking to someone with crusty lips. Eww. Like, eww. I can’t help but judge them and wonder why they can’t spend $3 on chapstick. Which brings me to my next favorite, Vaseline lip therapy. Not only does it come in a cute little pot, it’s cheap and comes in various flavors. I personally like the cocoa butter, but I’m no racist. I literally slather it on before bed to the point where my lips feel heavy and I can barely open them without actually putting a little effort into it. Just try it, you’ll understand and then you can thank me the next morning. You’re welcome.
Vaseline lip therapy (Target, $1.89)
Who doesn’t love a nude polish?! I didn’t think so, and O.P.I. certainly never fails to deliver not only one of the best nail polish formulas, but also a vast variety of nude shades. My fave ATM? “Don’t Bossa Nova-Me Around”; that’s right, the perfect nude polish for you bad a$$ betches.
O.P.I. nail lacquer in “Don’t Bossa Nova-Me Around” (Target, $8.39-$10.99)
It’s the final countdown! If you don’t know thats a song or who sings it, you’re too young bro’. Which lead me to my favorite song of the month.
Hello?! It’s me.. #Adele25
Last but certainly not least my final favorite for the month would have to be my Daniel Wellington “Classic Sheffield” leather strap watch. It’s a classic black leather band with white face and rose gold detailing. You can take it from casual to chic, and for the price it’s the perfect accessory.

Yikes, that was a long laundry list of favorites. If you’ve stuck around until now, thank you. If you have tried any of these favorites please let me know your thoughts behind them and most importantly share with me your favorites so that I have new things to bring to December’s favorites.
Rosie will bring cookies.
